The American Short Story Collection: The Golden Honeymoon (1980)

Episode 6
Only available in Canada, United States

Charley Tate (James Whitmore: two-time Academy Award Nominee, and Tony Award Winner) is an old windbag, often a braggart, but somehow always lovable. Married over fifty years to his ever-patient wife Lucy (Teresa Wright – Academy Award winner), the two of them are on their Golden Honeymoon in Florida. Everything goes perfectly – until Lucy meets her former fiancée, who's also vacationing with his wife. Suddenly there's a comic competition between Charley and the old boyfriend for Lucy's attention. After fifty years, cantankerous Charley has to win his girl all over again!

EDITORS' NOTE: We think the Golden Honeymoon is very much worth watching for the sweet and amusing story and the fine cast, but please know that the picture quality is not great.
